    What many Americans fail to understand is "They are NOT us".

    Many Americans, especially the right actually believes the rhetoric, "They hate us for our freedom". It has been repeated ad nauseum until the average American believes it's true. Like, "Obama is a socialist/Kenynan/Muslim" until even some Democrats believe it. Or "Obama took a two hundred million dollar a day trip".

    America needs to "STAY OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST".

    Look at what happened in Iran. The Shah was kicked out, and the country became a hard right Islamic Theocracy the first chance they got. Republicans with the forced help of Democrats invaded Iraq and destroyed those people's government and the first time they vote, they vote into office a hard right Islamic Theocracy. It's even written into their constitution. You only need to read Article II to know that to be true.

    Now America is saying Egypt must have "freedom" to vote and look at what they will vote into office. You can guarantee it will be a hard right Islamic Theocracy. Those people are wired that way.

    In fact, if our freedoms weren't protected by our constitution, the religious right would create a hard right Christian Theocracy here. That's what the religious do. Because they do it for "Gawd".

    If we weren't dependent on ME oil and if we stayed out of their affairs, this is what would happen:

    Either:

    They would become a democracy, which would end up making us safer.

    Or:

    They would become a religious theocracy, which would mean they are anti science and would be no threat to us. Science and religion don't mix. We know that looking at our own right wing.

    This is why America needs to invest in our future and get us off foreign oil. Anything else will once again lead to disaster.

    "They are not us"?

    So......so......you're telling me another group of people, who look and believe a certain way, are truly different from us? Should we maybe treat groups differently, then, based on the general way they act?

    I mean if one group is almost always responsible for blowing up planes....should we look for them?

    Just saying. If they are just like us, then they can act like us and we'll help them do it.

    But if they are truly honestly different, then why do we get told we must treat them as if they are just like us? They aren't....you said so.

    No they are like us.

    Easily manipulated by their bureacrats (like the OP of this thread towards democrats) and they value religion over education like the vast majority of americans.

    The only difference is they have a different god, and history shows when this is the case things don't end well for the country with less power.

    No, there is one more tiny, teeny weeny difference.

    They, and by they I mean MUSLIMS, a disturbing percentage of THEM, again, I mean MUSLIMS, tend to strap bombs to themselves and explode themselves in groups of strangers to get a point across, hoping THEY take as many of us (non Muslims) to the grave as possible.

    But other than that tiny detail, sure, they're like us.

    Your stupidity does show no limits.

    Oil is traded on a global market. We import most of ours from Mexico and Canada.

    But, if the Mid East oil flow is disrupted, it disrupts the global supply, thus the global price, and then of course our bottom line.

    Oh, and you can not say "We" referring to the United States. You're a fucking dipshit, coward traitor who fled the country because you couldn't hack it in a competitive atmosphere you pansy. Tell us how the 3rd world markets are doing. After that, STFU.:lol:

    Your wrong rdean (as usual). All people yearn to breathe free no matter what country they live in or religion they practice. So they are no different than us.

    It's governments that are oppressive not the people.

    Mmm. Rdean is partially right, partially wrong. Pretty much everything he said is wrong EXCEPT his first sentence.

    "They" are indeed "NOT LIKE US".

    We don't blow ourselves up on planes and in supermarkets.

    Sadly, however, we treat them just like us when looking for folks who may commit such an act.

    Please educate me on what that percentage is of muslims who strap bombs to themselves.

    Poor uneducated middle easterners born in ghettos strap bombs to themselves and kill people, poor uneducated americans become gang bangers and kill people in drive bys and during criminal activity. The only difference is one is scarier to you and the ppl committing these terrible acts don't share your religion. Both strategies end up with innocent people dead.

    Imagine how stupid it would be for me to claim a "disturbing percentage of christians are murdering gang bangers", but with the way our media molds people's brains you can see why people think they way they do. Imagine if everytime a christian gang member killed someone they had their face put on tv with the subtitle "fanatical christian terrorist strikes again" like we do with muslims.

    I'm just so thankful that I'm not a member of any of these disgusting groups (muslim, democrat, christian, republican, etc etc).
